Another black eye...

Another black eye for Camcorder & ComputerVideo magazine!

I was bored this late evening, so I went to my neighborhood's 24 hour pharmacy. It's only a block away. As usual, I headed straight for the magazine rack, and---"let me see, this one looks interesting"---picked up the January, 2003 issue of Camcorder & ComputerVideo. What especially caught my eye was the big, "Editor's Report - 10 Best Buys In Camcorders," on the cover. Ha! I started reading...then I noticed that cam #10 was the JVC GY-DV300 (a 3 chipper). But the funny thing was, the great big picture of it was actually the consumer, JVC GR-DV3000 (a 1 chipper)!! I wonder what Bob Wolenik thought when he saw the wrong photo of that cam in his "Editor's Report" article. Hehehe.

Does no one here buy this magazine? Actually, I look for Dr. Peter Utz's name first, and if it's there I buy it!

I've bought it for about 6 months, but then stopped getting my money's worth of useful stuff out of it. Now I give it a quick skim over in Chapters sometimes. :)

That mag shop on West 4th, between Yew & Arbutus, is pretty good. It's called, Does Your Mother Know?

Heh heh, great name! Do they sell a lot of, uh... "top shelf" magazines?
